Medicine

The Museum's medical collections richly represent social, cultural and scientific aspects of medicine. Based on the permanent loan from the Wellcome Trust, these holdings are one of the world's most comprehensive and wide-ranging collections in this subject. Ranging from prehistoric implements to MRI scanners and from London to Beijing, the great strengths are in clinical medicine and medical technologies from 1700 to the present day. Collections represent medical science, clinical medicine, community and public health and psychology.
